Hard to believe that right around the corner the End of Summer Party, Fall Mid Atlantic Shrine meetings, and our major fundraiser of the year Sportsman’s Spectacular will be here.
It has been a whirlwind of activities this summer and the approaching fall season will be just as busy if not more so. Ticket sales are starting to improve, but we still need YOUR HELP to make certain we hit our financial goals. There is still plenty of time to buy and sell tickets and assist at the Spectacular. We need assistance in the check-in areas, kitchen and food lines and
a variety of set up and teardown duties. If you can help in any way, please contact me and we will find
a task with your name on it. If you have not signed on to our Sportsman’s Spectacular Facebook page please like and share it. The membership referral program instituted by Imperial Sir Gary Bergenske is rolling and I hope that the Nobles will take every opportunity to get a new Mason and Shriner signed up to keep our mission vibrant. It is often said that leadership begins at the top and I can tell you our Imperial Leadership is committed to this program. We all need to do our part. I have one rather distressing issue to make you aware of and that is un- paid dues. We still have in excess of 150 members who have not paid their 2017 dues and 2018 notices will be mailed shortly. If you or anyone you know has not paid their dues, please get it done. We cannot afford to suspend that many Nobles. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me.

Fraternally yours

Illustrious Sir Tim Hofius

2017 Zem Zem First Lady, Ann Hofius

Where did the summer go? As fall approaches it is time for Zem Zem’s major fundraisers. Please stop by the Divan Ladies’ table at Sportsman’s Spectacular to purchase a ticket on a Ruger LCP and conceal carry purse to support the EOS project.

Thanks to the Venango County Shrine Club for their donation to EOS.

Ladies, Emily needs our help. Please plan to accompany your Nobles to Erie on Wednesday, October 25th. We will be stringing beads for bracelets for Beads 4 Needs.

Jewelry Jackpot is Saturday, October 21st. Tickets are available online, at the Temple, or from any Divan Lady. All of the proceeds from this event will help to purchase and install the EOS equipment at our Erie Hospital.

Please help to save our patients from the effects of over-exposure to radiation from standard X-Rays. Sup- port EOS!

Thank You,
First Lady Ann
